Impressive movie
3 December 2011 | by blackechtSee all my reviews

I was waiting for a long time coz of the title (in her skin). But after seen this impressive movie I can tell you it was not so disgusting however the exploit was gruesome to see. I love drama and some how I love it. If you love this movie you also have to watch Changeling with the same impact. The movie is entertaining and the height is not after one hour. You can see this movie in two parts. First hour the missing girl, the girl who hate herself so much and the second part the searching of the missing girl. Strong cast from Ruth Bradley. Sam Neill is not the main person in this movie but his cast is also good. Bit strange cover. Btw good music. This movie is also good for psychologists. Nobody is perfect!
